The Item Search Form allows you to add a form to your process in which the user can search for an item (e.g. an entity in a business module) and save the search result into the process context.
This search result can then be grabbed from the context and used in a subsequent step in the process.
An example of the use of the Item Search Form is a process which searches for projects in a Projects business module, and uses the output search result to change the entity's stage.
The following image shows such a process setup:
|Title||String||Use this field to give the step a friendly title.|
